Olympics back in Whistler, perhaps?
With a large amount of trepidation, the extravaganza known as The Olympic Games is finally underway. It’s been a long road but the games will finally play out, in one form another. Records will be set, dreams will be realized and athletes will compete for their place in history.
Here in Whistler, the opening of the Tokyo Olympics has caused many of us to think back to 2010. What a wonderful time we all had as we hosted the winter version of the games. Whistler and Vancouver put on a fantastic show. As a result, we got to showcase the beauty of this amazing corner of Canada to the entire world. Despite the up-front costs and the huge logistical challenges, the long-term benefits for hosting the games have been unquestionable….. which begs the question, should we do it again?
There are indeed very serious intentions of Vancouver and Whistler hosting again in 2030, with a Preliminary Bid Submission presented this past February. With our 2010 success and all the facilities already in place, it would be no surprise if we see the Olympics back in Whistler. The winning bid for the 2030 games will be announced in 2023.
I wonder what another successful Olympics in Whistler will do to our already very buoyant property market?
